I know the subject line sounds like a bit of a joke, but I just moved a block from Chatham Sqaure, and while I love all the Asian food options nearby, sometimes I just crave a non thai/chinese/vietnamese meal.
And so far, unfortunately, it's not looking promising. Giambone, the last Italian holdout at the base of Mulberry St. isn't great, Everest coffeeshop in the square is near awful, and I'm burning out on Good World on Orchard.
Please... Anything you can recommend in this vicinity, or even with a bit of a walk towards Tribeca or SoHo or the Lower East Side, would be greatly appreciated....
